Present: 21 Cutting Through

Question:  PA Pick 5, July 2

The situation calls for confronting a tenacious knot and cutting through it.  Somehow, the way to harmony and unity is blocked or frustrated - perhaps by a tangle of deceit or corruption.  Like Alexander the Great cutting the Gordian knot, take decisive action and you will meet with good fortune.  Don't be afraid to shake things up a bit.  The ability to take corrective measures, when they are needed, is an essential trait of true leadership.

But those who bring discipline to bear must, above all, be honest - with others, and with themselves.  Honesty is the hallmark of the strong and self-confident.  The successful person masters the art of honesty much as a swordsman masters fencing.  When lies, delusions and game-playing are getting in the way of teamwork, a swift sword of honest action, perhaps even punishment, must be wielded to protect one's integrity and values.  Decisiveness with integrity at a time like this brings good fortune.

Though your actions be vigorous, they must not be hasty, severe, or arbitrary.  Be sure to carefully consider all the circumstances.  In the case of a serious disruption of relations or events, you must forgive, but not forget - at least until a person has made reparation for his mistakes.  If corrective action is necessary, make certain that it fits the crime.  When rules have become slack and useless, only through the institution of clear and swift penalties can their effectiveness be restored.

In situations where serious issues of justice are at stake, keep careful records, and do not hesitate to go public with the truth.

The most specific advice with regard to your question is contained in changing line 1:

A single, first offense is not cause for condemnation and stiff punishment, but some form of corrective action is needed in order to prevent further transgressions.  If you have been wronged by someone, confront the matter openly, but without hostility.

Future: 35 Easy Progress

This hexagram represents the quality of likely opportunities and challenges arising from changes that are in process now:

The general situation is one of easy, natural progress.  What has been weak is steadily ascending, and by gaining a prominent position, becomes more powerful.  The image is the light of the rising sun, which at first appears dimly through the mists.  But this weak light later radiates with powerful clarity once the sun has reached a high position in the sky.

Progress is made when those in subordinate positions make peace with those above, and in so doing create a natural means for their talents and abilities to become prominent.  It is by recognizing and riding with the natural course of events- by hitching our wagon to the rising sun, as it were - that we advance our position and earn respect.

Don't forget, that goodness in human nature is like the dim but beautiful early morning light.  It can easily be obscured - by greed, hatred and other forms of self-absorption - just as the morning light can be swallowed by fog.  Be reminded that progress is achieved most effortlessly when right action is taken without concern for immediate reward, and when the path of the weaker aligns with that which is strong.

Present: 30 Clinging Like Fire

Question:  PA July 2 second sorting

Flames cling to their source of fuel in order to keep the fire burning.  Likewise, in the human world, everything that radiates light or love is dependent upon something else.  Through these dependencies we discover that everything is related, each thing to the other.  Awareness of your own dependency on others is the key which unlocks the door to your true place in the world.  No woman is an island.

Fire is also a symbol of liberation - crackling little molecules flying away from home.  Paradoxically, by clinging to what is right and proper, we gain inner freedom.

Given perseverance on your part, this reading indicates success.  In spite of challenges, cling to what is luminous in yourself, in others, and in life itself, never forsaking your belief in what is right.  When events seem foreboding, or people seem oppressive, remember the good that has been and is yet to be.  Holding to this idea is to cling to the power of the light, the force which enables inner darkness to be illuminated.

The most specific advice with regard to your question is contained in changing line 3:

At the end of the day, the setting sun calls to mind the transitory nature of all existence.  The great souls understand that death comes in its allotted time, and that until that moment, life is for living.  Enjoy simple pleasures while they last.

Future: 21 Cutting Through

Present: 08 Holding Together

Question:  PA July 2 third sorting

Holding together brings success.  But high-level teamwork is achieved only when a clear goal is shared by the right players on the right team at the right time.  A team forms its relationships in a delicate manner; chemistry is brewed in the vat of shared experiences.  Late-comers cannot share the same depth of union as earlier members.  Whole-hearted commitment is required for team success.

All successful teams have a shared vision and a leader.  If a team's leadership is up to the challenge, the team will prosper.  In political and business affairs, just as in basketball, it is hard to win without a strong center.

Accept the structure of the team if you wish to receive its benefits - otherwise go off on your own.  In holding together with others, cling to your own principles, but be willing to subordinate your personal desires for the good of the group.  Perhaps you are contemplating becoming a leader of a group; remember that to become the center of influence binding people together is a considerable challenge and a serious responsibility.  Assess yourself carefully first to see if you qualify for this role.  If not, it would be better that the group not be formed than for you to lead it without proper preparation.

There are two changing lines.  Either one or the other or some combination of both of them will be relevant.

The first changing line is Line 5:

A very beneficial union is in the offing.  There will be good fortune, as long as you are careful not to force things.  Let the people come and go, and when the right one arrives, you will know.  It may be time to align yourself with a person at the center of things.

The second changing line is Line 6:

Difficulties arise when matters are not begun properly.  Even with a good beginning, problems are inevitable; without a sound beginning, the problems that come with the passage of time will be insurmountable.  Once its head has been severed, no amount of "correction" will cause a frog to jump.

Future: 23 Disintegration

This hexagram represents the quality of likely opportunities and challenges arising from changes that are in process now:

In every life, all is not what it seems.  At this time, things are on the decline and reality seems like a hall of mirrors, or a house with a collapsing roof. Intrigues are multiplying like flies, and there are rumors of discontent.  It is the time of illusion, deception, distrust and disintegration. 

When you find yourself about to become trapped in situation that is falling apart, it is necessary to retrace your steps.  Return to the familiar; take solace in what is firm and secure.  Gather up your energy and do not confront the source of the problem directly. There is no blame in holding back; indeed, it is your responsibility to  keep your strength intact for the period of resurrection, which follows the period of disintegration as surely as dawn follows the night.

Discretion is the better part of valor and good timing is important too.  Learn to choose the proper moments for action, thereby avoiding futile effort.  Be particularly attentive at such a time as this for changes that signal a time to retreat. 

In the realm of personal relations, discovering illusion is always painful, and confusing.  When in the midst of such a period, it is wise to avoid undertaking any bold new moves or competing with inferiors; it is especially important not to jump to conclusions too quickly.

        Jack

        No I did not renew.

        I am still leaving the Internet for maybe 3 to 12 months, maybe 6.

        Thanks a lot for the nice thoughts any-way.

        I have to forget about LP and the Internet for awhile, get some free time to get my pick 3 methods together.

        To re-think pick 3 methods out.

        To study the pick 3 a little bit more.

        Maybe to learn one or two things about Excel also.

        The 5th or the 6th should be my last day here.

        I will be back in some months.

        I will miss you all.

              Illinois Little Lotto

              July 2, 2006 Prediction

               

              3-8-17-24-2

               

              Consultation on Sunday, July 02, 2006 at 8:56 AM.

               

              Present: 03 Difficulty at the Beginning

              Question:  Illinois Little Lotto July 2 first sorthing

              Difficulty at the beginning.  The birth of anything - including any new venture or relationship - is an entry into the realm of the unknown.  At the same time, new things seem to be rushing upon you, and confusion can easily take over.  But chaos is a powerful force if you harness it properly.  Just don't rush things.  Do not let events overwhelm you.  Stay calm and persevering, but do take the first step.  And get whatever help you can.

              Challenges lie ahead.  Gain strength; find courage.  Like a new born fawn, the opportunity for rapid development is real, but only by being determined can the fawn rise to its feet and survive to grow to full stature.  Keep going despite difficulties and you will find the success you desire.  Your primary challenge is maintaining personal clarity.  Avoid lunging at solutions; wait until a good course of action becomes clear.  Do not start a new venture before thinking it through.  A careless step in the beginning can easily cause events to get out of control later.  Enlist the aid of experienced people.

              The condition of things in the present is fairly stable. There are no specific changes indicated right now.

              Present: 45 Gathering Together

              Question:  Illinois Little  Lotto Jul 2 second sorting

              The power of gathering together is represented by a rally, where each individual's strength is magnified by the power of the community as a whole.  History has shown that mass movements can bring about stable, ordered and durable conditions for the better.  This reading may be pointing to an auspicious time for large undertakings.  But the guiding force of a shared vision is essential to hold the forces of unity together, and keep them advancing toward a common goal.

              Another image for this situation is that of a lake filling with water.  Just as the fullness of the lake can bring good fortune to all in its sphere, it can also overflow, leading to calamity.  Thus in a time of gathering together it is essential that precautions against unforeseen danger be considered along with efforts to advance along a clearly-charted course.  Much of human misfortune comes from unexpected events for which we are ill prepared; when gathered together with others, we are both more powerful and, in some ways, more vulnerable.

              Any time of unity is a time of potential greatness.  But that greatness can be both positive and negative.  Everything is magnified when masses of people unite for a single purpose.  When many people unite behind a single goal or strong vision, it is wise to take personal precautions, and to protect your own reasonable self-interests, because these can easily be lost in the crowd.

              The most specific advice with regard to your question is contained in changing line 4:

              When one takes on a temporary or subordinate leadership role in service to a greater leader, supreme good fortune! To play such a role properly is a sign of maturity and balance, and bodes well for you in the future, providing you can play the part properly.

               

              Future: 08 Holding Together

              This hexagram represents the quality of likely opportunities and challenges arising from changes that are in process now:

              Holding together brings success.  But high-level teamwork is achieved only when a clear goal is shared by the right players on the right team at the right time.  A team forms its relationships in a delicate manner; chemistry is brewed in the vat of shared experiences.  Late-comers cannot share the same depth of union as earlier members.  Whole-hearted commitment is required for team success.

              Present: 49 Revolution

              Question:  Illinois Little Lotto july 2 3rd sorting

              According to Chinese symbolism, the juxtaposed elements of this hexagram are fire under water.  Fire evaporates water, and water puts out fire.  Change often causes conflict; conflict brings about change.  This hexagram refers to that time in the cycle of human affairs when things need stirring up, and when the hint of dramatic change is in the air.

              In order to succeed, revolutions must be in alignment with certain immutable laws.  They must begin at the right moment, gather support from a broad-base of people, be guided by sincere and capable leaders and - most important of all - must address a real need.  The strength of the forces of change will always be in proportion to the urgency of the need being championed.  This is true whether the revolution is in government, in business, in education or in one's personal affairs.

              Revolutionary change points to a time when chaos arises from order.  It is important to realize that not all order is good, not all chaos bad.  Chaos, in fact, is an integral part of the way of things - as any parent (and modern science) will confirm.  Have the courage to radically change and renew the way you present yourself.  In this way, you can summon chaos to your cause, and you will unleash a new power on your behalf.  If engaging in a negotiation, change the rules; if composing a piece of music, add the unexpected; if courting a lover, dare to be unconventional.

              In periods of drought, even wild storms are preferable to yet another sunny day.

              The most specific advice with regard to your question is contained in changing line 3:

              Initiating action at the present time might well bring negative results.  When change becomes necessary, it would be unskillful to proceed with haste and ruthlessness, which could be courting disaster.  The other error lies in excessive hesitation and conservatism, which is also not advisable.  Not every demand for change in the existing order should be heeded.  On the other hand, repeated and well-founded complaints should not fail to get a hearing.  Examine every situation thoroughly.  Do not be led astray.

              Future: 17 Following

              This hexagram represents the quality of likely opportunities and challenges arising from changes that are in process now:

              Following brings supreme success.  You may not be able to change the direction of the wind, but by frequently adjusting your sails, you can arrive at your destination.

              Those who would acquire a following must speak the language of their followers.  Those who would be loved must become the imagined lover of their beloved.  Those who would prosper must bend with the pressures of the world.  In matters of principle, stand firm; in matters of style and taste, swim with the current.

              In the affairs of humanity, change is constant, and old ideas are continually discarded in favor of new ones.  Only by being adaptable to the demands of the time can a great leader emerge.  Only by adjusting to changing circumstances can one prosper in the world of commerce.  Remain flexible, and you will gain the confidence of those around you.  Bend and you shall not break.

              Present: 24 Returning

              Question:  Illinois Little Lotto july 2 fourth sorting

              There is a turning point which recharges you and eventually brings success.  It is associated with a turning of darkness back towards the direction of the light, the winter solstice, the shortest day of the year, the day when darkness begins to decrease and the hours of daylight increase.  It is the beginning of a turn-around; a time of letting go of the old and making way for the new; a time of new beginnings, and it starts with rest.

              Don't move too fast.  The new momentum is just beginning; the turn-around demands that your energy be recharged by adequate rest, so that your life-force will not be spent prematurely.  This principle of hibernation, of allowing energy to renew itself and be strengthened by rest applies to many situations - recuperation after an illness, the slow return of trust after period of estrangement, the careful development of new relationships after a splitting apart of old ones.

              The most specific advice with regard to your question is contained in changing line 1:

              Everyone suffers setbacks from time to time.  The lucky ones suffer some small ones early in life, so that they learn that they can survive a period of collapse.  In this case, a minor setback is little more than an inconvenience, so long as proper action is taken before it goes too far.  Persevere, return to the main road, and good fortune will lie ahead.

              Future: 02 The Receptive

              This hexagram represents the quality of likely opportunities and challenges arising from changes that are in process now:

              Great receptivity attracts exceptional results.  A natural responsiveness brings about success through support and perseverance, rather than through bold action.  Thus, the wise person demonstrates strength like a powerful but gentle mare.  This hexagram, consisting of all yin lines, represents a power of the feminine principle no longer honored in our modern world, but such receptivity is most auspicious.

              The receptive force is sensual as well as powerful, and it can be missed by too much talk and planning.  When spring comes, does the grass "plan" to grow? This is a time to concentrate on realities rather than potentials - with how to respond to a situation rather than how to direct it.  The mature mare lets herself be guided by a higher power, and is skilled at graceful acceptance.  In a strong spiritual way, her quiet contribution is most effective, and brings success.

               

              Do not be too assertive at this time, for if you try to direct things, you are liable to become confused or alienated.  Take your time.  Draw strength from carefulness and you will be doubly fortunate.  Focus more on feeling than on action.  Be broad and deep in your attitudes so that you can accept everything that comes your way with grace and equanimity.  Be receptive and spacious like the ocean; let the river of changing developments flow to you.  Allow others to take the lead for now.  Strive for a pure natural responsiveness that is based on inner strength rather than outer show.

                  Present: 29 Dangerous Depths

                   

                  Question:  Indiana lucky 5 5/36 July 2, 2006, first sorting

                   

                  Exposure to danger brings good fortune to those who move beyond it.  Like boaters passing through white-water rapids, those faced with serious challenges must remain alert; they must take all available precautions; and above all, must keep going forward so as to remove themselves from harm's way.  Once the danger has passed, good fortune.

                   

                  The positive side of danger is that it offers an excellent chance to cleanse the senses and strengthen the spirit.  Surviving danger brings with it tremendous reinvigoration, and sharpens the eye and mind for future challenges.

                   

                  It is reckless to court danger, but critical to inner development not to shrink from it either.  Those who respond to danger most effectively are those who are able to establish an inner bubble of calm in the midst of the action.  A calm center keeps one rooted in the moment, alert and focused.  Courage at such times springs from focused attention, from a willingness to penetrate the moment of danger to its very core, so as to shape it and transform it.

                   

                  There are two changing lines.  Either one or the other or some combination of both of them will be relevant.

                   

                  The first changing line is Line 2:

                   

                  Calmly take stock of your situation, and be realistic.  When one is in trouble, it is unwise to think immediately of escape unless the causes of the current dilemma are clear.  Sit still, and learn what you can.

                   

                  The second changing line is Line 3:

                   

                  Like a rock climber stuck on a narrow ledge high on a cliff, any move, forward or backward, leads to trouble.  Forget escape - it's impossible for the time being.  The only thing to do is wait for help.  To move might only complicate the efforts of those trying to help you.

                   

                   

                  Future: 39 Temporary Obstacles

                   

                  This hexagram represents the quality of likely opportunities and challenges arising from changes that are in process now:

                   

                  Have temporary obstacles been blocking your way? In the course of trying to reach a goal or fulfill a personal ambition, obstructions inevitably present themselves.  This is not always a bad thing.  Obstacles, difficulties and even setbacks which are eventually overcome often become assets.  Without irritating grains of sand, oysters would never make pearls.

                   

                  The obstacles pointed to here are not permanent, yet they are in the way.  As when a large boulder falls in the road, the best course of action is usually to go around it, rather than to try to move it out of the way.  Temporary obstacles must be seen for what they are - temporary - and should not be allowed to take on too much significance.

                   

                  A positive aspect of even the most difficult obstacle is that it may cause a person to turn inward, and gain greater depth and character.  While the ignorant bemoan their fate and seek to blame their problems on others, the wise seek the cause of the problem within themselves.  Through this type of introspection, obstacles become a means for personal growth and self-discovery.

                   

                  Without air resistance, no plane would ever fly.

                   

                  If you are facing temporary obstacles, try not to be overly concerned.  Obstacles are a part of achieving every goal and furthering every undertaking.  Setbacks and reverses can affect morale, but keeping up your self-confidence in the face of obstacles is part of a successful solution to many of life's problems.  Obstacles of short duration are best handled with a yielding attitude.  Go around the rock, don't put your shoulder to it.

                  Present: 02 The Receptive

                   

                  Question:  Indiana Lucky 5 july 2 second sorting

                   

                  Great receptivity attracts exceptional results.  A natural responsiveness brings about success through support and perseverance, rather than through bold action.  Thus, the wise person demonstrates strength like a powerful but gentle mare.  This hexagram, consisting of all yin lines, represents a power of the feminine principle no longer honored in our modern world, but such receptivity is most auspicious.

                   

                  The receptive force is sensual as well as powerful, and it can be missed by too much talk and planning.  When spring comes, does the grass "plan" to grow? This is a time to concentrate on realities rather than potentials - with how to respond to a situation rather than how to direct it.  The mature mare lets herself be guided by a higher power, and is skilled at graceful acceptance.  In a strong spiritual way, her quiet contribution is most effective, and brings success.

                   

                  Do not be too assertive at this time, for if you try to direct things, you are liable to become confused or alienated.  Take your time.  Draw strength from carefulness and you will be doubly fortunate.  Focus more on feeling than on action.  Be broad and deep in your attitudes so that you can accept everything that comes your way with grace and equanimity.  Be receptive and spacious like the ocean; let the river of changing developments flow to you.  Allow others to take the lead for now.  Strive for a pure natural responsiveness that is based on inner strength rather than outer show.

                   

                  The most specific advice with regard to your question is contained in changing line 5:

                   

                  When called to play an important role in an organization, or on a team, success comes from reliability and discretion.  Deal with everyone politely and kindly, and you will secure greater influence.  Discretion is essential at this time.

                   

                   

                  Future: 08 Holding Together

                   

                  This hexagram represents the quality of likely opportunities and challenges arising from changes that are in process now:

                   

                  Holding together brings success.  But high-level teamwork is achieved only when a clear goal is shared by the right players on the right team at the right time.  A team forms its relationships in a delicate manner; chemistry is brewed in the vat of shared experiences.  Late-comers cannot share the same depth of union as earlier members.  Whole-hearted commitment is required for team success.

                   

                  All successful teams have a shared vision and a leader.  If a team's leadership is up to the challenge, the team will prosper.  In political and business affairs, just as in basketball, it is hard to win without a strong center.

                   

                  Accept the structure of the team if you wish to receive its benefits - otherwise go off on your own.  In holding together with others, cling to your own principles, but be willing to subordinate your personal desires for the good of the group.  Perhaps you are contemplating becoming a leader of a group; remember that to become the center of influence binding people together is a considerable challenge and a serious responsibility.  Assess yourself carefully first to see if you qualify for this role.  If not, it would be better that the group not be formed than for you to lead it without proper preparation.

                  Leave the pursuit of fame and praise to others.  Focus on accepting yourself.  Freedom from vanity can be a powerful force.  Do not display your virtue for all to see, but nurture it within yourself.  Attempt to be of service and your life will improve by itself.  Allow fruit to ripen slowly.  Quiet effort is called for now.

                   

                   

                  Future: 15 Humility

                   

                  This hexagram represents the quality of likely opportunities and challenges arising from changes that are in process now:

                   

                  Humility is often rewarded in human affairs, just as valleys are filled by the erosion of great mountains.  It is the way of the world to fill the empty cup.  Regardless of your position, humility is a positive and deceptively powerful attribute.  If you are in a high position but are still humble, people will be drawn to you and the causes you espouse.  If your position is lowly, humility will endear you to those of higher status. True humility is a virtue to which all should aspire.

                   

                  The most successful people are those who know how to bring each situation into balance by reducing that which is too great, and adding to that which is too little.  Such a person craves not power, but balanced and stable relationships.  Humility is the virtue which allows you to perceive the balancing force in each situation; humble people are not prey to the many illusions which grow out of self-importance.  If humility is not natural to your disposition, make a conscious effort to develop a strain of self-effacing humor.

                    The old I Ching's good, but sometimes you have to discount an entire sort because the hexagram numbers fall outside the matrix.

                      On the other hand, it's actually just a manual, or digitized RNG.  The manual side's done by separating yarrow stalks or using a coin toss method (a bit biased, those coin tosses, however).

                      Or the digitized version separates the yarrow stalks at an electron level, instead of having to do it the long way.

                      I happen to use the Visionary Systems version, but I expect others are available.

                      On the other hand, I almost never use them for coming up with lottery numbers, aside from a few times in the past on the Mystical Forum, just for the heck of it.

                      But as you can see, it can be done for Pick 5.

                        The matrix is formed by a grid of eight hexagrams up and eight hexagrams across, which would be middling good for, say, NY Lotto, or even PB and MM.  On those the hexagrams would rarely fall outside the matrix.

                            Quoting...."Without air resistance, no plane would ever fly".

                            I always thought that planes fly because of the lower air pressure caused by the shape of the plane's wings. They cause a vacuum on the top of the wings, drawing the plane upwards to balance out the pressure. Adjusting the vertical stablizer, slats and the ailerons will either lower or raise the plane.

                            Resistance is the plane's worst enemy, especially when there's a head wind.

                            However, a plane could not obviously fly in a vacuum. So the terminology could be that you need air to even fly at all, however, it's the design that makes it actually stay up in the air.

                            The only exception to that rule would be when a plane is landing. Then resistance is playing a major role.

                             When a plane is cruising along high in the sky, nothing is pushing up on the wings. The plane is being pulled up by negative air pressure.

                            An easy and fun experiment can be done to show how this works. Take a thick hard-bound covered book and hold it 3 or 4 feet off the ground. Place a sheet of paper on top of the book, and drop the book. Just make sure the piece of paper is not bigger than the surface of the book. The sheet will follow right along, at the same speed, and without any interruption to the sheet. The sheet will not budge because there was a vacuum on top of the book. The pressure on top of the book was practically zilch. No resistance for the sheet of paper. It's like dropping a piece of paper in a total vacuum chamber. It will fall as quickly as the book.

                            No big deal, I just thought I'd throw that out.

                              PAC:

                              Ever noticed an airplane taking off on a short runway?  Forty degrees of flaps?

                              Those flaps induce drag, while at the same time increasing the arc across the top of the wing.  Drag.  Resistance.  Short takeoff.

                              Ever noticed what happens when a pilot puts pressure on the left rudder pedal?  The rudder pulls  left interrupting the airworthiness .... resistance.  drag. 

                              Every control surface on an aircraft induces and reduces drag as a means of controlling the aircraft.  Resistance.

                              The resistance of the fluid (air) to the screw (propeller) moves the craft. And so on.

                              However, it's irrelevant, since the reference to aircraft was only a means of establishing a point.

                              It's about number behavior.
